Buick has now released the final performance specifications for the 2012 Regal GS. Have a look at the pictures below before going into the details.
Power comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 270 hp (201kW / 274 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400Nm) of torque, which is 15 hp (11 kW / 15 PS) more than original estimates. It enables the GS to accelerate from 0-60 mph in approximately 6.7 seconds, when equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.
It is claimed that the Regal GS 2.0L turbo delivers the highest specific output of any production engine GM has ever offered, and at 135 hp per liter is the most power dense engine ever certified by SAE.
Though the model is expected to be available at US markets this fall, no official confirmation has come regarding the price.
